BRINGING MAGGIE HOME
BY KIM VOGEL SAWYER
I thought this books started slow, but the more you read, the more interesting it gets. The characters were interesting and well developed thoughout the story. Sean was my favorite, I think everyone would like him. He always stood up for his faith and his God, but not in a way that made him seem holier than thou! He was just a nice guy and I was really rooting for him and Meghan to get together. Hazel was the sweetest old lady and my heart ached for her and the heartache she lived for 70 years. To have that one her mind for that long, it was just horrible. I didn't really like Diane and her attitude, but in the end, I understand why she acted like she did. She's just not my favorite of them all.
Hazel’s sister Maggie has disappeared when their mother sent Hazel blackberry picking and sent three year old Maggie with her. Despite the community searching effortlessly, Maggie was never found. Hazel and her parents were never the same. Life was hard, bitter and so sad from that day on. Hazel went through life with Maggie’s lost a secret from her family. It was when her granddaughter came to stay with Hazel to heal from an accident that the secret was accidentally brought to surface. Follow the journey of Hazel, her daughter Margaret Diane, her granddaughter Meghan and Meghan Cold Case Crime partner Sean as they investigate this seventy year old case of missing persons. I highly recommend this book. Kim Vogel Sawyer dies a really nice job of weaving God and the Christian life into the lives of her characters. I appreciate that.
